Default Front power outlet - want something different Help!

Ok guys, got my new-to-me 2008 and noticed the front power outlet is in need of replacing. have to wiggle it for it to stay on. So since I will most likely need to replace it, has anyone done, bought or seen something with3 outlets and a usb, besides the belkin ones at the auto parts place. something with leds and if i need to cut into the panel to make it fit so be it. if there is a single with a usb port I would consider that also. I have the armrest so many option are running through my mind right now and the voice keep chanting, do it! do it! do it!.

I have toyed with the idea of taking the bottom compartment of the armrest and turning it into somewhat of a charging station. something to charge my phone, ipod, some batteries for my camera and my RC. any suggestions?

I think your best bet would be to get one of those 3fers that you've found, or even investigate what is available from Radio Shack, hard wire 'em in and do some custom fab work to make it fit properly.

I don't think the set up that you've pictured exists in something that will fit in the factory location without a lot of reworking..

I tend to ramble and repeat myself, please try to over look my ignorance.
